MetroPCS Revives $40 Smartphone Plan
MetroPCS today announced that is once again offering a $40 plan to all 4G LTE smartphones within its portfolio. This plan had previously been available only for the Samsung Craft, which MetroPCS ceased to sell in December. The new $40 monthly plan includes unlimited talk, text, 4G web browsing, and 100MB of streaming media. Customers may also choose the $50 or $60 monthly plans, which add access to more streaming media.
Samsung brings a mid-range Galaxy-class device to MetroPCS's network in the Attain 4G. This simpler smartphone packs some surprises, along with some disappointments.
The Galaxy Attain is the result of trying to make a 4G LTE phone really affordable, for a prepaid carrier like MetroPCS. It's a cute little phone, with that blazing fast LTE inside.
The Samsung Craft is the first LTE phone on the U.S. market, available on Metro PCS.
